I used to define two different mapping for maximize and restore window. But I wanted a map that can toggle between them. So, I came up with this function. This function assumes you are using win32 version of gvim. If you are using different version, then substitute :simlat ~[rx] by the key combination for your window manager.

Add following lines to your vimrc.

let w:windowmaximized = 0
function! MaxRestoreWindow()
  if w:windowmaximized == 1
    let w:windowmaximized = 0
    " restore the window
    :simalt ~r
  else
    let w:windowmaximized = 1
    " maximize the window
    :simalt ~x
  endif
endfunction
map <F5> :call MaxRestoreWindow()<CR>

CommentsEdit

I thought window scope should be used in this case, but it doesn't work when a window has multiple screen. It seems working with global variable.

let g:WindowMaximized = 0
function! MaxRestoreWindow()
  if g:WindowMaximized == 1
    let g:WindowMaximized = 0
    " restore the window
    :simalt ~r
  else
    let g:WindowMaximized = 1
    " maximize the window
    :simalt ~x
  endif
endfunction
